Review this Book



With its days of invention and industry behind it, the once great nation of Britain is a crumbling wreck. Led by the megalomaniacal but charismatic Gareth Blaylock, the tyrannical Ministry rules the country with an iron fist. The poor and downtrodden must slave away down the mines while the rich live a life of opulent splendour.

Within this world of luxury lives Gareth’s thirteen year old son, Sam. Oblivious to the pain and suffering outside his door, he whiles away his days playing cricket and going to garden parties. But one day, his father makes a fatal mistake that thrusts Sam into a world of suffering and torment.

Just as all seems lost, Sam meets Xan da Silva, a mysterious boy with steam powered wings. Xan reveals to Sam an invention which promises to bring light to the darkest times. But in order for it to work, Sam must take on his father in a battle between the past and the future.

A great page turner good characters and storyline. Looking forward to a sequel.

James Getgood

James Getgood wrote his first science fiction novel at the age of nine, a dystopian thriller set on a training camp on Saturn’s moon Titan. Although it didn’t bring him the fame and fortune he was looking for, he spent his youth fascinated by the alternative universes that speculative fiction offered.

At university, he studied English Literature, where he learned that accomplished YA Fiction could be every bit as inspiring and powerful as writing for adults. After graduation, he became an English language teacher and has taught in the bustling metropolises of Seoul and Tokyo, the scorching deserts of Saudi Arabia and a ramshackle favela on the hills of Rio.

Firedamp is his first novel for young adults.
